The time has come again to put something new together from scratch. The old system is on its last legs. I am not entirely a hardware geek but you guys have helped a lot in my decision-making process. So first of all, thank you for all the helpful posts!
Here is what I came up with thus far for my new rig. Intended use is for gaming including OCing. I would really appreciate if you could give your thoughts about this or if you see any problems that this build might run into.
1- ASUS P5Q Deluxe is a better mobo
2- HD 4870 is better than 9800 GTX
3- mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 is better than your choice
4- Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB is a better hard disk
